So it looks like my ex-husband has to have another brain surgery on a craniopharygioma tumor. 😔 Between 2011 and 2012 he had 3 brain surgeries and radiation. The tumors are stubborn and can grow very quickly. They attack his pituitary and opti... Read more

So I have decided not to do the half marathon on April 30th. It's just too expensive. 😔 The race is in Champaign Illinios which is an hour and a half away. It would require us to get a hotel room there because the race starts at 7:30am, and the... Read more

I feel like I have had this virus forever! It's only been 5 days though. Every morning I expect to feel a little better, but instead I feel the same, or worse. I've got a sore throat, fever, cough, and some kind of stomach bug. I lost my voice... Read more

Adjusting my goals.

Tomorrow I will be getting my body fat measured at my gym. My Florida trainer said it may be better if I shoot for a body fat goal instead of a weight goal. She said not to go under 17% body fat because I won't have enough energy for my runs. H... Read more

Trying to be charitable, but instead I got bullied.
Saturday, November 28, 2015      3 comments

I should know better and just give things to a charity so I don't have to deal with the people that feel so entitled that they call me names if they don't get the thing I'm giving away. I don't have a lot of charities that I can give away thin... Read more

Geez! I must first say that I have a good life. I have a great family and a supportive boyfriend. I should not be feeling guilty. It just seems like nothing that I'm doing is good enough for anyone. I feel like I'm failing as a mother becaus... Read more

Friday, November 13, 2015      8 comments

I often wonder what goes thru the mind of other runners out there on 5am runs. This is some of my inner dialogue. 5am alarm goes off. I shut it off and open my eyes. "Do I have to run today? Can I do it tomorrow?" "No. I need to get up and ... Read more
